Ann Marie Auricchio uses the language of painting to explore a deeper perception of time, place and the complexities of emotional and cognitive associations we make with our world. Auricchio’s paintings materialize from the convergence of frenetic energy, environment, light/shadow, obsession, anxiety, meditation, history, memory, and a pure visceral response to both physical and psychological places. The creation of Auricchio’s work relies on a balance of experiences and observations from both inside and outside of the studio.
